AP-AC_M_PRO Range and interference

Wonder if someo can give me some info.

 

I have meshaed three AC_M_PRO's in a linear format. To avoid trenching No1 is wired while the other two mesh wirelessly.. There is line of site between them with maybe a few small branches in the vacinity. The distance between 1 & 2 is 169m and 2 and 3 just under 100m. 

 

I would have thought these would mesh in a vey stable manner as they are omni directional, but have fund that they continually become disconnected and miss heartbeats.

 

Do you think I should add directional antennaes to the mix to overcome the issue?

 

Thanks for your comments in advance

Hello @ShawneBotha,

 

Use AirMAX devices for wireless bridges and use UAPs for clients.

Hello @ShawneBotha,

 

NanoBeam AC Gen2s should do the job if you have a clean line of sight.
